    - Back on 10130, did a 'keep files/settings' upgrade.
    - After reaching the 'Welcome Back!' page, the Next button worked this time.
    - Run through the usual 'express settings/customize settings' setup.

    - I'm very worried that someone who considers themself to be tech savvy, and who'd previously done the update numerous times flawlessly, had so much trouble. Regular people are going to be calling for MS's blood if they encounter problems.
    It certainly is a brave step to try to flawlessly convert so many systems to win 10. Especially as most of the failed systems won't have the backup image to fall back on as most of us here would have.

    Interesting times for the goto windows fixit people. I am not looking forward to that.

    But, who knows, by 29 Jul there may be only a few with problems? Hope so.

    @Slarty - mine is a UEFI system and I have two partitions, system and recovery. (Actually, I lie - there is a 1MB unallocated space at the right end!
    I thought it might be, the Windows install for UEFI systems seems to be a more 'accurate' disk schema. Accurate in quotes simply because the size of the partitions created more closely match the documentation.
